Fix the road first....
Voices: Oh, oh!
Hon. Larry Bagnell: That's what I wanted to ask about.
Climate change is playing havoc with our roads in the Yukon. Just a couple of weeks ago, I announced $2 million for science and equipment to try to mitigate the effect on the permafrost, the heaves that we have in our roads, and the safety issues that's causing. With your experience on the ground, having lived there for a long time, I was just wondering how you see any changes related to climate change, particularly how it's affecting infrastructure.

On the foundations of buildings, does that affect you?

Right.
Your suggestion related to the Coast Guard is interesting. Where is the closest place to Tuktoyaktuk where the Coast Guard or the navy actually docks a ship?

So they dock at Inuvik instead of at Tuk?

Okay.
I have some more questions, but I'd better give Churchill a chance here, too.
First of all, you said that you were part of the NWT at one time. The Yukon was part of that NWT empire, too, until the gold rush, when we became the Yukon.
I just want to know what your experience is with climate change and infrastructure in the area. Looking a long way into the future, I've always predicted, actually, that the Arctic Ocean is going to melt faster than even the scientists are saying. When that's melted, could you tell us a bit about what the opportunities would be? I'm sure you've had studies on the economic opportunities of shipping from Churchill.

What would you ship, and where?

I have one last quick question for Mayor Gruben.
I understand that in the Gulf of Mexico spill there were 5,000 boats involved. Do you think the federal government should be investing more money in how to clean up an oil spill under ice, which would be quite a challenge? I think we should be investing, but do you think we should be investing in that research?
